Trees block Cheshire Ring canals

High winds overnight have brought down trees, blocking the Ashton and Peak Forest Canals.

On the Lower Peak Forest Canal, a number of trees have come down near Bridge 3, Dukinfield Hall Bridge, and are blocking the canal. On the Ashton Canal, a number of trees have come down near Bridge 19 at Audenshaw and are blocking the canal.

British Waterways are taking immediate action and are mobilising contractors to remove the trees.

These stoppages affect boaters navigating the Cheshire Ring.

For further information about these stoppages, contact BW on 01782 785703.
